UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.

Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.

And we never give up.

 

For every child,

Under the guidance of the Chief of Communication for Development and in close coordination with corresponding government-led coordination platform, the C4D / Ebola Response Team Leader will be responsible for co-coordination and for updating the strategy and implementation plan approved by the government and supported by the UNICEF C4D /Social Mobilization response  team.

 

How can you make a difference?

The Minister of Health (MoH) of the Democratic Republic of Congo declared a new outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) on August 1st 2018, following the confirmation of four cases of Ebola in the Mabalako health zone of the territory of Beni, North Kivu province, Eastern DRC. In early October 2018, more than 230 cases have been reported across 7 health zones in two provinces, i.e. five health zones (Beni, Butembo, Oicha, Musienene and Mabalako) in North Kivu province; and two health zones (Mandima and Mambasa) in Ituri province.

Since then UNICEF multi-disciplinary teams from WASH, C4D, Psycho-Social, Security and Logistics have been deployed to the region as part of the first intervention team in support of the Government response team.  In this same month, the government and partners successfully ended the Ebola epidemic in the Equateur region, that spread between May and July 2018. The C4D teams in Equateur played a major role in the response and were integrated in all response commissions.  With this in mind, UNICEF DRC is urgently in need of a well-qualified and experienced candidate to lead the UNICEF role and accountabilities in the area of C4D / Social Mobilization for Ebola Response in Eastern DRC and provide guidance to C4D staff and partners.
